This tutorial is to help people make new themes. I have had several people ask me how to make new themes. Creating a theme is very easy; all you need is a image editing program like Photoshop, Gimp, Paintshop Pro, or any other. I prefer one that has Layers and other advance features but any will work. You will also need to download the theme maker from Here
Step 1 - unzip the folder to your computer. (I keep the Theme maker folder on my desktop since that is where the program creates the theme files and it's easy to get to).
Step 2 - look into the folder there is an a file called NuvoPearl-template.psd that is the file you will edit to make your new theme. Open it up with your image editor.
Step 3 - Edit this file to look like what ever you want your theme to look like (I wont go into how to edit the file in this document but I normally do layers over the background image this has several advantages over just editing the image.)
Step 4 - save your file twice once in the .psd format and once in the .png format.
Next Open MaemoThemeMaker.jar
Step 5 - Make the theme file.
5.1 Enter Theme Name Max Length 9 Characters.
5.2 Enter Your Name or Screen Name if you wish to use that instead.
5.3 Select Theme Background File.
5.4 Select Theme Source File(Select the .png formatted file.)
5.5 Layout for Theme is Chinook (Still works for Diablo)
5.6 Theme Version ( I normally start with 0.1)
5.7 Top Bar Height need to be at least 45 pixels but I always do 60 so the Top bar is always the same size since home view will always be 60.)
5.8 I normally go with 12 or higher for system font.
5.9 I notice anything over 20 and things start to get misshaped do to font size.
5.10 I normally got with 12 or so on Title font also.
5.11 I don't use this but it just makes your borders smaller.
Step 6 - Click Build Theme Tab then Build Theme!
Once Progress bar hits 100% (sometimes I get a pop-up saying its done sometimes I don't) you will find your theme files in the ThemeMaker Folder you unzip earlier.
Step 7 - Upload that file to your Tablet or Web and Install.
